The Leishmania tarentolae Parrot-TarII strain genome sequence was resolved to an average 16-fold mean coverage by next-generation DNA sequencing technologies. This is the first non-pathogenic to humans kinetoplastid protozoan genome to be described thus providing an opportunity for comparison with the completed genomes of pathogenic Leishmania species.

The purpose of this study was to obtain quantitative information of the relative displacements and rotations of the carpal bones during movement of the wrist. Axial helical CT scans were made of the wrists of 11 volunteers. The wrists were imaged in the neutral position with a conventional CT technique, and in 15-20 other postures (flexion-extension,(More)
BACKGROUND The human protozoan parasites Leishmania are prototrophic for pyrimidines with the ability of both de novo biosynthesis and uptake of pyrimidines. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Five independent L. infantum mutants were selected for resistance to the pyrimidine analogue 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) in the hope to better understand the metabolism of(More)
